Yeah, it's been around for a while, but it's still damn useful.

Creating a JPG+RAR

1. Prepare your JPG and your RAR, and place them in a folder.
i. Ideally, use a simple folder name, like "b". (For now, we will call our JPG "pic.jpg", and our RAR "archive.rar".)
ii. Also use a simple file path, like C:\b.
(For some reason, this is the only way I can get it to work. You can rename your output file later.)

2. Open up cmd by clicking run and typing "cmd".
i. You then need to "cd" to your folder. Do this by typing "cd \b" without quotes.

3. Perform a combine copy.
i. Type "copy /b pic.jpg + archive.rar output.jpg" without quotes. Please note, if you spell the second filename wrong, then it will skip it without displaying an error, so watch out for that.

4. Navigate to C:\b.
i. Your output jpg should be present. It should actually be called "output.jpg".

Opening a JPG+RAR

1. Get to the file you just saved.

i. Make sure viewing file extensions are enabled

2. Rename the file you just saved from "output.jpg" to "output.rar".
i. Ignore the error if one appears, just click yes.

3. Open up the file in WinRar or 7-Zip.
